Yue and Nodoka are practicing magic, and one spell catches their eye: The Red String of Fate. Supposedly, this spell connects you with your fated partner. Nodoka decides to try it out, and ends up tied to Negi. However, this spell isn't the Red String of Fate at all, but is in fact just a red string that connects two people. A magical red string that happens to be impossible to sever. Delightful. Meanwhile, Ayaka invites the class to a free trip to her family's recently constructed spa resort. Tied together for at least a day, will Negi and Nodoka be able to make the most out of this free trip without going too far...?
This OVA is much better than the first OVA (spring). This episode actually has a decent plot and some drama. As in the first OVA, the animation is very good, better than the original series. The characters are drawn a little differently (a different animation studio I suppose) but after watching both OVAs I'm getting used to it.
There's lots of fanservice which you expect from Negima, and even more than usual because it's an OVA.
This is definitely worth watching if you're a Negima fan and will whet your appetite for the whole 2nd season, if you haven't seen it yet.
I liked this OVA alot better than the Haru one. The only issues I have with it are the fan service with Asuna is kinda over the top, but besides that it's pretty decent, and can I just say that Nodoka looks so CUTE in her outfit in this.
This OVA has alot of fan service as I said before. Besides Asuna they have it a little for Nodoka as well, as well as most of the girls there (as for the fact there all wearing swimsuits)
Natsu OVA maintains the essence of Mahou Sensei Negima! (the series), and gives the viewer the opportunity to watch Negi and his class in one more of their awkward experiences.
It all starts out when Yue casts out a spell that binds Nodoka an Negi together by a string for a given period of time. At the same time, Ayaka decides to invite everyone to a pre-inauguration at a Spa Resort her family recently made. The story is just fine, it's acceptable. The art and animation is a bit better than the series, about as good as Mahou Sensei Negima! OVA Haru. The sound is alright;
songs are fun to listen, and sound effects are well placed. Every character is refreshed in the viewers mind by portraying the signature characteristic of each, somehow, in the OVA.
This OVA is fun to watch, and to kill time with it. It includes more ecchi scenes than the Haru OVA and than the original serie, and more explicit as well (the reason for this is what Haruna says in the OVA, "This isn't even a TV anime!". The episode can be understood even without watching the serie, just like the Haru OVA, but you won't enjoy it as much since it has many comical scenes directly related to the anime.
If you already watched the complete series, I recommend you to watch this special.
